What is Taxonomy?

Official definition: The practice and science (study) of classification of things or concepts, plus the principles that underlie such classification. (see the Wikipedia article). In the context of legal practice, taxonomy is typically associated with the scheme for classifying content in a document management system. 

As an example, the taxonomy in a document management system might consist of elements like this: 
> Client > Matter > Sub-matter
> Document Type > 
> Practice Area >
